Christmas Santa Scratch Off Envelope

I like to give out Lotto scratch off cards around Christmas time and wanted to make a fun holder for the cards.  I came up with this Santa Envelope using a red 5 x 7 envelope I had in my large envelope stock.


I basically sealed the envelope and cut off about 1/2" on one end creating a pocket.  Then it's time to decorate as shown below.

My Pretty Pines Christmas Card

This was my Christmas card for 2016.  I like making a bigger card so I can put a decent size Christmas photo inside.  I used Pool Party card stock with Silver Foil and White accents.

Stitched Shaped Framelits with Pretty Pines in Always Artichoke and Dazzling Diamonds

Ornament Surprise

I found a bunch of chipboard coasters and shared some with a friend.  What a nice suprise when my talented friend Barbara Dellicurty made me this wonderful ornament.  I love sharing and getting surprises.

Gusseted Cellophane Bag with Peppermint Candy

This is one of the easiest way to dress up a Gusseted Cello Bag.  I used Candy Cane Lane DSP

For this bag I cut the DSP 4" x 10 1/2" and scored at 1 1/2", 4" and 9".  Filled with Sweet Stripes Soft Peppermint Candy.

If you want to put something bigger, like pretzels, cut the DSP 4" x 12" and score at 1 1/2", 4" and 10 1/2".
